Assaults on Reston paths

Over the past couple of weeks five people have been assaulted on Reston paths, including a cyclist who was severely beaten by a group of youths. From the report on NBC4, String of Assaults, Robberies on Reston Paths May Be Connected
Police say a series of four assaults and robberies along pathways in Reston, Va. during the past couple of weeks may be related.

A common thread between the incidents is that individuals walking or riding bikes along secluded paths were approached by several men, who assaulted them and demanded money.

"[They're] knocking people down, punching them, assaulting them, taking their belongings and then leaving. Sometimes running, sometimes walking away," Lucy Caldwell with Fairfax Police told News4's David Culver.
The incidents occurred near Moorings Drive and North Shore Drive, Southgate Community Center, Hunters Woods Park, and Hunters Woods Village Center. More info on Reston Patch and on the Fairfax police website.
